Control phrases and code words

10.10.18 09:01 PM

“But it is requisite that members of the common herd be imprisoned in abject ignorance, never doubting that they are ‘free and self-sovereign individuals’ who are in full control of their lives and families, and who can speak freely on any subject they choose, and worship whatever God their consciences dictate.”*– Unknown

There is such an avalanche of information bombarding the American people that it all has a mind-numbing effect. That information is peppered with code words and control phrases that are designed to dictate thought patterns, modify behavior and create predictable responses.

Most people are unaware that code words and control phrases exist, and that the aim of the unseen powers is to ensure the masses of people believe essentially the same things. That’s because governments thrive on control, conformity and manipulation.

Governments insist on conformity because governments want to control the people. Where there is conformity, there is control.

Edward L. Bernays, the nephew of Sigmund Freud, knew a thing or two about mass persuasion. He is the father of manipulative propaganda in America. In his book “Propaganda,” Bernays writes:
Those who manipulate the unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested largely by men we have never heard of.

In almost every act of our lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business or in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires that control the public mind.

I call these people Bernays talks about “change agents.” Change agents operate in the back rooms or inner sanctums of power, and their job is to create control words or phrases that are repeated over and over to dumb us down and dictate conditioned responses.

So the words and phrases the establishment creates and uses against us can rightly be called control words or control phrases.

Words and phrases are created that are used to drive the debate and create a ready acceptance of laws and policies that reduce liberty and debase society. Once these words and phrases become part of conventional wisdom through continued use, challenges to the newly accepted definitions are ridiculed and dismissed.

For instance, the substitution of the word “gender” – a grammatical term – for the word “sex” – a biological term – as a distinguishing descriptor for male or female is the work of these change agents.

The effect is to program the mind. It removes the biological component that distinguishes male from female and inserts an esoteric component that allows for the denial of reality and creation of an alternate reality.

I have written about code words before. See, “Code words,” and “More code words.”*Common ones are terms like “public policy,” which really means government policy; “conspiracy theory,” which means any challenge to conventional wisdom; “extremist,” which means anyone who advocates for small government and a return to the constitution; and “terrorist,” which means anyone the government decides, including Americans who advocate for liberty.

But new ones are constantly entering the lexicon, and old ones are given new life. Here are some coming into regular use of late:

White privilege – This phrase implies that all successful white people obtained their status simply because of their skin color and because the system is tilted in their favor. It dismisses and diminishes hard work and seeks to establish the notion that anything a white person has or does is illegitimate. It’s being used to great effect by the social Marxists to keep racial and sexual animosity at a fever pitch and to silence those who support traditional conservative and Judeo-Christian values.

Bad optics – This one reared its head in the Brett Kavanaugh hearing. It is code for “everything is unfair if it is being conducted by white conservative male,” and “old white Republican men should not make decisions on women’s issues.” Only liberals can participate in the process (and sex, age and race does not matter). It is designed to delegitimize any process in which a white conservative male is involved.

Trade bullyism – China’s response to President Trump’s trade war. What China calls America’s trade protectionism while ignoring its own protectionism. Another version of this is political bullying. Hillary used this very tactic when she told CNN, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about … if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again.” Classic example of projecting, i.e., accusing the other side of doing exactly what members of your side are guilty of.

National security – That is now a new code word for “we can do whatever we want.” The “we” can be the any government agency. Claiming “national security” automatically puts any inquiry off limits and legitimizes any government action, no matter how nefarious.

Diversity – Means anti-white male and anti-Judeo-Christian values.

Capitalism – The American system is not capitalism and has not been for more than 100 years. What is called capitalism today is actually corporatism — few corporations controlling everything — example, what we have in the media, big tech and pharmaceuticals. It results in authoritarianism and a kind of fascism.* However, socialists – who are becoming more ascendant in American politics of late, especially among the younger crowd — are blaming this on capitalism, which is a lie. If we had real capitalism and a real free market, this wouldn’t happen.

Objective media — This means the agenda of the state. It is a control phrase used to bolster the concept that the only “real” news comes from the mainstream media. Today, all national mainstream media are controlled by six mega-corporations. Any media that does not toe the official line of the government is considered “biased” media, especially when it publishes the truth.
